Description

At its heart, this is a practice of attending to what is, at it is, as we are. It invites seeing and touching the magical in the mundane, the extraordinary in the ordinary. Contemplative movement and photography can be practiced anywhere, by anyone with a camera.

This 8-week online course introduces contemplative photography from a somatics, embodied approach drawing on Body-Mind Centering®. In weekly zoom classes experience guided somatic movement meditations that engage perceptual process. Play with ways of attending to and framing experience, and evoke creative perspectives on movement and the visual world. Meditation practice leads into a weekly theme to guide your contemplative photography practice for the week. Particpants are invited to join a Slack workspace to share photos, resources and discussion.
